Air Jordan VI ‘Olympic’ 2012 – Detailed Images
It’s going to be sizzling hot summer with Air Jordan Retros. Just yesterday, Sneaker News gave you first look at the upcoming Air Jordan VI/VII ‘Gold Medal Pack’, featuring a Gold-based duet of the two Air Jordans that originally dated from 1991-1992. Originally rumored to be part of the ‘Gold Medal’ or ‘Olympic’ Pack was this Air Jordan VI Retro; a nearly identical version dropped back in 2000 when Ray Allen, Jordan Brand’s marquee brand representative, won Gold with the 2000 Olympic Team. Twelve years later, Air Jordan-ites are treated with a Retro of that famed release, but with one minor alteration – the color-blocking at the forefoot of the midsole has been flipped. Regardless of that switch, these are likely to be one of the hottest releases of the year when these hit Jordan Brand retailers this July. Continue reading for a first detailed look at the Air Jordan VI ‘Olympic’ 2000 Retro and stick with Sneaker News for more updates regarding this highly-anticipated release. Many thanks to Danny (@Verb04) of SoleFly!

I still cannot quite believe I could possibly be one of those studying the important ideas found on your blog. My family and I are truly thankful for your generosity and for offering me the chance to pursue our chosen career path. Thanks for the important information I acquired from your site.
Hahahahaha this statement had me laughinging these people now have a thing for Jordan 6, they have a right to, but theese specific sneakers came outnbefor ebush knocked down the towers. How well aware of u of any nba team status?
thats what the sneaker game is turning into, no integrity, its a shame, but imma still try to keep it real, hopefully everyone else will catch on
fuck the midsole change, i'll save my money for the retros they did right like the fire reds and obsidians
first decent pics ive seen it looks better than i thought originally .....s/o to whoever wants to pick up. i will cop if i dont get the french blues or the obsidians this year
Yall crying about the mid-sole change? You know they change something to make them differ from the release before (it count be a different material all together so chill) the toe box looks funny like the 4's did. Their still nice pass if you want but you will be sorry!
They sweet screw a mid sole change. Dang u mean to tell me I gotta wait in line for these joints thou???? Glad I know people at FTL Corp.
@ant your a fucking idiot dipshit the original 2000 olympic 6s had puffy round laces you stupid ass kid don't know shit.........anyways anyboyd notice the color is a little differnt it looks almost grey...the other ones were actual blue and they almost ALMOst looked purple in the sunlight..again I'm nt saying they were purple idiots
AND TOO ALL U IDIOTS OUT HERE WHO DON'T UNDERSTAND WHAT A RETRO IS, ITS TO BRING BACK THE PAST BUT NOT COPY ALL THE WAY. JORDAN AND HIS BRAND BEEN SAID FROM THE JUMP RETROS WILL BE SLIGHTY DIFFERENT SO THAT THE ORIGINALS WILL ALWAYS BE ONE OF ITS OWN. EVEN RE-RETROS DON'T COPY RETROS. THESE OLYMPIC'S 6 ARE STILL RETROS THESE NEVER CAME IUT IN 91' BUT THE COLOR SCHEME IS ORIGINAL SO STOP CALLING THESE OG'S. SO THEREFORE THE MIDSOLE IS SWAPPED BIG DEAL GET OVER IT, SHOE IS STILL HOTTTTTT AND WATCH ALL U CRY BABIES LINE UP FOR THESE LIKE EVERY OTHER RELEASE.
peopleare so fucking stupid, SHOES ARE RETROES BECAUSE THEY ARE REMAKES OF THE OGS YOU IDIOTS, THEY ARENT GOING TO BE IDENTICAL BECAUSE IF THEY WHERE THEN THE OGS WOULD BE WORTH NOTHING. DUMB FUCKING I D I O T S....JUST BE THANKFUL THAT THEY ARE RELEASING THEM
Do you all remember how long it took them to put a black midsole on the 10's back? Either way I'm copping these but I do have a feeling they'll put it back. I just think they mess with us on every release now (White midsole Chicago 10's, "Tech Grey" 4's). They'll fix it.
they are cool. but damn if they had the right midsole they would be a must cop....I still got some time to make my decision I guess..
i know people are tired of hearing about the changed midsole. but it honestly just throws the whole shoe off. pass for me but luckily there is a ton more jordans to cop this year. good luck to anyone tryna cop these.
I just hope that I can get a pair. I very sick of having to wake up at 5 in the damn morning just to get try and get some shoes. Its not even a guarantee. Seems like they only expect kids to get them. Im 29 with a family.I can't even get jays for my kids. shit is crazy.
Lookin pretty good hopefully they will put the midsole back to normal either way im getting them so i can put my 2000's to rest =)
Pass, color blocking switch on midsole throws the look off. 160 bucks I can put towards a quality pair of gel-lytes or something.
Thats the reason , we have to be at the retailers early for a definite cop. Or face the a-holes charging people $250+ on just retros.
There has to be a difference. That's why they make the changes. Chicago 10's had the checkered inner and red jump man while the cement 4's had a Darker shade of grey. Jordan already stated in the past, there will always be changes to till the differences.
im with you man. Today the shoe game is ******d up. Before, it was too easy to cop. Now, it's too damn hard like yo have to fall in line. And the worst thing is ,1 day release , 1 minute sold out. What is going on JB people?
Ur stupid too something so small only u and other assholes like u care, passing bcuz of one flipped color
Dam mann you guys are lucky ive only been able to cop easily once..at least you older dudes had it easy I been coppin js for years now and theres always been fake as collectors with nothing better to do then cop a pair of jordans there gunna wear like 50 times until there garbage
I bet you ill sell where i dont have pay that much extra to buy carmines. Hype is gonna make people miss out on these. Cmon you should know with What happened with The white cement 4.
